What sets Dance Mixx Studio apart is our mission to develop accomplished and versatile dancers, with an emphasis on a truly unique and technical foundation. This dedication stems from our passion for dance and education, and started very early! As a native of Lincroft, NJ, Miss Jolene grew up dancing at the Academy of Dance Arts in Red Bank, NJ, as well as Just For Kicks in Eatontown, NJ. She studied in New York City during the summers at Joffrey Ballet, Dance Theater of Harlem and Juilliard and upon graduation from high school, she was accepted to attend the Juilliard School for college.
While in Julliard, she had the pleasure of performing pieces by world-renowned choreographers such as Jose Limon, Paul Taylor, Martha Graham and Ohad Naharin. After graduation in 2003, she joined Cedar Lake Ensemble of New York City. During her four and a half years with the company, she was given the ability to tour the country and achieved soloist status.
After fulfilling her life-long dream of becoming a professional dancer, she decided to share her wealth of information and experience through educating others. With this strong commitment to helping each and every student achieve and exceed personal goals in an encouraging and enriching environment, Dance Mixx Studio was founded in 2011.
In addition, Miss Elysha has dedicated her life to performing and teaching various styles of dance. Her versatile style gives her students the ability to live up to their greatest potential whether it be jazz, hip hop, lyrical or contemporary. She is a graduate of the Red Bank Regional Performing Arts Dance Program where she now serves as a regular guest artist.
Her innovative choreography has won numerous awards at the regional and national levels. Elysha is enthusiastic about continuing her training, as well as staying on top of the newest styles and trends. Her goal is to encourage and inspire young dancers who share her passion for dance!
We are committed to giving our students the personal attention and guidance that is necessary to be wholesome and well-rounded individuals as well as dancers!
